Pioneers Russell Street Nursery is dedicated to the care and education of children from birth to two years old and we are delighted to share in this magical time with your family. Your little one will be in caring and very experienced hands at our wonderful centre. We are often told by parents of children at our centre that the best part of the nursery is the warm, calm and homely environment.

As soon as your baby or toddler joins us at the nursery you will meet the key teacher who will be responsible for their individual care and learning. This special feature of our programme helps us to establish a close relationship with your child and your family. We will follow established routines from home and will keep in close contact with you throughout your child’s time at the nursery to ensure that their needs and those of your whanau are being met.

Pioneers Russell Street Nursery provides a friendly and relaxed environment in which young children can safely explore the world around them, develop and learn at their own pace and without hurry. We encourage children to connect with the natural environment all around them and our centre is focused on sustainability.

We love to sing and dance and encourage free movement and communication. Our highly qualified and fully registered teachers are there to support the children as they take their own first steps on the educational journey, gain knowledge and confidence and start to make decisions about their own education and care.

We believe healthy habits should start from birth and have a qualified cook at the nursery to ensure nutritious meals and snacks are available throughout the day. We are proud to have been awarded a Healthy Heart Award.

At Pioneers Russell Street Nursery we will nurture your child’s precious early learning years and help them to thrive.
